Five Secrets for Natural Hair Re-growth

  1. 1. Five Secrets for Natural Hair Re-growth David Rodgers, M.S. Nutrition Founder, Nutrient Balance CenterAuthor, “Reloaded: Natural Hair Loss Secrets
  2. 2. Overview Hair Loss does not “just happen” due to aging There are underlying imbalances in body chemistry that cause hair to become thin and to be released from the root These causes are nutrient deficiencies, thyroid hormone imbalance, prostate hormone imbalance, and calcification
  3. 3. This Presentation- There are many secrets in my book, and Im revealing five of them to you here today.- For some people, doing these five things might be enough to restore your hair to completely full and thick- For most, they will need to experiment with many of the other therapies listed in the book as well.
  4. 4. Does This Really Work?- Scientific Research – the book contains 36 citations, 35 of which directly show links to government approved research studies, hospitals, or major universities- Testimonials – wide search of the web shows that these methods are helping- My own experimentation
  5. 5. Hair Loss Secret #1 - EFAs In order to optimize hair growth, you must be consuming the correct amount of essential fatty acids “Essential” means that you must consume them or you will run a deficiency These are omega 3 and omega 6 Omega 3 - Fish oil, flax seeds/oil, walnut, Chia Seeds, etc.
  6. 6. Hair Loss Secret #1 - EFAs Omega 3 - You should be consuming between 1200 and 1800 mg per day of fish oil. Recommended softgels are molecularly distilled and have 600mg DHA/EPA per pill Jarrow EPA/DHA Balance and Natural Factors RxOmega3 Factors Take 2-3 of these higher dose omega 3 pills per day, but start with one and ramp up
  7. 7. Hair Loss Secret #1 - EFAs Omega 6 - Most people consume the wrong type - Corn, Canola, Cottonseed, Soybean  These are highly heated, can become trans fat  These are highly processed, form AGEs  These all come from genetically modified plants  Omega 6 - Most people consume the wrong type - Corn, Canola, Cottonseed, Soybean Instead have the healthy, unprocessed omega 6 oils - Raw walnuts, raw pecans, raw sunflower seeds, virgin sesame oil, virgin sunflower oil 1-2 Handfuls of nuts/seeds, 1-2 tablespoons of the oils
  8. 8. Why EFAs Works Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids have been proven to help normalize production of DHT from its precursor hormone which is testosterone – (U. of Chicago) Too high levels of DHT have been shown to cause hair loss Reputable organizations correlate the deficiency of essential fatty acids with dry hair or poor hair growth
  9. 9. Secret #2 - Silica One of the least known minerals is one of the healthiest for your hair - and your bones, joints, nails, and skin. It’s called silica Silica is not silicone, but it is silicon In a research trial at the University of Cincinatti, it was found that silica, in the form of choline- stablized orthosilicic acid was able to both strengthen and thicken hair by more than 12%.
  10. 10. Why Does Silica #2 Work Silica helps the body to both form more collagen and improve blood flow to the scalp Increase blood means that more nutrients are able to be carried into the hair root, resulting in thicker and shinier hair Purchase BioSil or JarrowSil for the correct form of silica - drops
  11. 11. Secret #3 – Coconut Shampoo Mineral oil and Sunflower Oil, two oils used largely in hair products, were studied along with coconut oil for effects Only coconut oil was found to penetrate the hair root, and reduce hair protein loss (Journal of Cosmetic Sciences) The result is smoother and thicker hair
  12. 12. Secret #3 – Coconut Shampoo Rather than take solid coconut oil, you can use the saponified version found in Dr. Bronners Magic Shampoo Leave the shampoo on your hair for two minutes and be sure that the suds get rubbed in enough that they reach the root areas
  13. 13. Hair Loss Secret #4 - GLA- Gamma-linolenic acid or GLA is the only form of unsaturated fatty acid that is not widely available in foods- Generally found in evening primrose oil, borage oil, and black currant seed oil- Normally, LA gets converted into GLA in the body, but not everyone gets enough, or has optimal GI function
  14. 14. Hair Loss Secret #4 - GLA- Most GLA products contain about 40-60mg per pill.- Studies assessing GLAs effects used dosages of around 3000mg- I recommend for men 240mg and women between 240mg and 480mg- Good source is Jarrow Borage – 240mg/pill
  15. 15. Hair Loss Secret #5 Topical Panax Ginseng
  16. 16. Hair Loss Secret #5 Topical Panax Ginseng- In Dermal Papilla Cells – topical panax ginseng is anti apoptotic (Journal of Ethnopharmacology)- Increases the proliferation of dermal papilla cells, which directly means that it improved hair regeneration ability- So far only shown to be true in mice and test tube studies. However testimonials for humans have been moderately good.
  17. 17. Hair Loss Secret #5 Topical Panax Ginseng- Panax Ginseng (Radix or Fructus) comes in shampoos, conditioners, and hair lotions. Good brands are Aubrey Organics, EO Products, or Jason Natural- Apply as directed on the package- Aubrey Organics Mens Stock has an ingredient list that looks most promising to me
